The Service Call
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything on here. Most of my articles were written back in 2013. Seems like the older I get the less I write as I am spending a lot of time with Douglas. He just wants a ton of attention.
As a working hearing dog, he still goes to work with me every week. And at home he stays in the same room with me. The reason is so he can notify me of any sounds I might not hear. A few weeks ago I was waiting for a painter to stop by.
And at the time Douglas was with me in the basement while I was gathering the laundry from my washing machine. Little did I know the painter was going to be 15 minutes early. Due to my severe hearing loss I could not hear anyone come to the door.
But Douglas heard it and he notified me right away. He turned his head towards the stairs and ran to me and tapped me to let me know someone was outside. If it wasn’t for this dog I would of never answered the door on time.
Thank god Douglas can help me out at times like this when I can’t hear the doorbell or knocking. He make life easier in certain ways.
